Sensitivity Analysis of Multiscale Reaction Networks with Stochastic Averaging
25 Jan 2016  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Araz Ryan Hashemi
We shall show how stochastic averaging may be employed to speed computations and obtain estimates of mean values and sensitivities with respect to the steady state distribution. Further, we shall establish bounds which show the bias induced by the averaging method decays to zero as the disparity...
